Saskia Blake

Landscape Architect

Saskia believes in landscape as a truly public and socially innovative pursuit, tackling the key urban questions we face and providing design solutions at all scales.

Initially educated as an architect in Glasgow, Saskia moved to Copenhagen in 2015 where she completed her MA in Urbanism and Societal Change. Her masters project explored the deep connection between the residents of Welsh valleys and their surrounding landscape, and the potential of large scale land asset transfer to help secure their future. The proposal has received a large amount of funding and is currently going through a feasibility study backed by the Welsh government. 

During her professional career in both London and Copenhagen, Saskia has worked on a large variety of projects, ranging in scale from masterplanning to interior design. However, it was her keen interest in the intersection between landscape and architecture, which lead her to pursue a career as a landscape architect.

Saskia spends most of her spare time cooking and drawing. When not in London you’ll find her at her family house in Wales walking through the Welsh mountains and hanging out with her pet pigs.
